Pro Series Translite Bike Rack Recall [Canada]

Canadian FlagCanada/Ottawa: Cequent Performance Products recalls some Pro Series Translite Bike Racks due to crash, road hazards. HCSC: http://ht.ly/ltim9

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/31815r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves some Pro Series Translite Bike Racks, specifically Model Number 63144. The recalled Bike Rack is a hitch-mounted bicycle rack with dual arms, each having four rubber cradles with hook and loop straps that hold the bicycle in place. The Bike Rack is capable of carrying up to four bicycles on a vehicle. The recalled products can be identified by the absence of a green sticker on the exterior surface of the product packaging or on the product itself. A green sticker identifies products that are not subject to the recall.

According to HCSC, some cradles used in the production of the Bike Rack may tear during use or if excessive force is applied to the cradle straps, potentially allowing a bike to disengage from the Bike Rack. If this occurs, and a bike falls onto the roadway, the resulting road hazard may cause a motor vehicle crash or property damage.
